you don't need to obtain a blood test for herpes. You had a + hsv2 lesion culture that confirmed your status. No reason for more testing. Is hsv2 serious? No it is not.

your urologist is greatly misinformed about the way herpes is transmitted. you don't need additional testing for herpes - you were never at risk from this encounter!! is a test a month post encounter reliable? no it is not.
